After the advent of the Internet, last minute vacations garnered a lot of prominence among people who go for vacations occasionally. Earlier it was a custom to book for the tour days before the actual date of the tour and wait for the day to come. But after the world wide web became popular, people started booking their tickets on the net. But after this, these last minute deals are introduced and they are instant success with people.
The main aim of the last minute deals is to fill in all the tours with tourists. They don’t want to keep any vacancies in buses, trains or in any place they go. So, during last days of booking(before the tour), they offer tickets in cheaper prices or in convincing deals. This attracts people and they want to grab the opportunity. In this way, the tour is done without any vacancies, which otherwise wouldn’t have been possible. In this way the tourism people benefit(though not in the exact way they would if the tickets were sold earlier). They benefit from these tickets, though the profit is bit less but more tickets would be sold in this process, nevertheless. In the same way people can go to tours in comparatively less expenditure. Some people may want to go to tours but the price tag attached to it may not let them go. For such people, last minute deals are a great help. In this way, these deals are a win from both the ways.
